Last year, I wrote about the Class of 2017 and their plans. Seems only right that I should write about the Class of 2018. They, too, are a remarkable group of individuals who care about the world they live in – the world they will soon be leading. So, without further ado, here are the schools that look forward to welcoming our graduates.
Hobart and William Smith Colleges
Maine College of Art
Maine Maritime Academy
Mount Holyoke College
The New School
Saint Anselm College
Saint Lawrence University
Salem State University
Southern Maine Community College
University of Maine
University of Maine, Farmington
University of Southern Maine
Wentworth Institute of Technology
Worcester Polytechnic University
Among the group who stated majors, there are 22 scientists, 10 engineers, 10 working with arts or design, 7 looking toward the liberal arts, 2 business, 2 working toward skilled trades, 4 entering the work force – including one with his own landscaping/snowplowing company – several are undecided and 7 are taking a gap year.
This group is also full of the pioneering spirit that brought our original group of students to Baxter. Like NASA’s “next nine,” they are the “next class.” And the world #bettermakeroom.
